the level of taxation on the poor so it's a little disheartening to hear michele bachmann or mitt romney in the speech suggest it's a problem that so many people don't pay taxes. what we want is fewer people paying taxes, and those that day paying less. ben said that's a concerted theory to starve the beast and starve the government. we think morally and economically it's a better system when people pay less in taxes and that should accompany less spinning. >> all this redistribution of wealth stuff. the president wants to redistribute the wealth in the country and that's what the republican talking point is, and we have a chart i want to show. doesn't the tax code. >> what i was just talking about. >> isn't that what it does, redistributes the wealth. >> progressive taxes. >> these shady areas, guys, these are where there have been -- you can come along, it's already. republican presidents, the red shaded areas. earned income tax credit, look at all the taxpayers not paying. moochers and deadbeats. just the way it works. >> your chart illustrates the point i just made. republican

why they are doing. michele bachmann the other day was criticizing president obama, ashleigh, for saying that obama can go to new york, and he can go to new york and has time for letterman, but he does not have time for benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. and who is going to get you more votes? a tense meeting with benjamin netanyahu or go on letterman to get votes from that show? i think that the answer is cl r clear. >> the little box on the right-hand side of the screen is making news as well. i want to draw your attention, wolf, and the viewers to the box of the touchdown of the space shuttle "endeavour" flying this morning from kennedy space center making a stop for refueling and little as it goese final resting day in los angeles. this is the final trip, and the vistas are spectacular. we will take a break and talk more on the other side. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though

congresswoman and former presidential hopeful herself michele bachmann speaking to the council. the group will hear from the biggest name at this conference, republican presidential nominee paul ryan who is seen here yesterday on a brief return to his current job which is still on capitol hill. he's still got to be one of those voters on particular legislation. but today he's expected to really amp up those partisan attacks on president obama's foreign policy, especially with what's happening right now across the fwloeb and that brings me to my colleague wolf blitzer who is live with me in washington, d.c. i'm expecting he will echo what his running mate mitt romney has been doing refusing to back down on the harsh critic jims how obama and the administration is handling what's going on right now and particularly in a pointed interview with one of our colleagues in the media, george stephanopolous. >> this is what romney said. he's not apologizing at all for his initial or subsequent comments about how the obama administration handled the unrest both in cairo as well as in benghazi.
